- David Luiz appears to elbow Gonzalo during Chelsea training hours before Europa League final
- A furious Higuain confronted his Brazilian teammate David to have words with him
- Seconds later an angry manager Maurizio Sarri was seen blowing his top and storming off
David Luiz seemed to have elbowed Higuain during Chelsea’s training before angry Maurizio stormed off the session hours before their Europa League final.
The Italian manager tossed his cap to the ground, grabbed it back, took a few steps and left it flying in the air on Tuesday.
According to UK Sun report, the latest incident is coming hours ahead of Chelsea’s showdown against Arsenal in the Europa League final.
A club representative later confirmed that Sarri's unceremonious exit from the session was due to the presence of journalists at the scene.
The Italian tactician believed his squad members could handle practice for set pieces — alongside penalties — for remaining 15 minutes of training ahead of their Europa league cracker against Arsenal.
And with the media presence, Sarri was not disposed to try any surprises during set plays, without being captured on camera.
However, after watching the video clip for the first time, many will assume the manager was furious at the ‘fight’ between Luiz and Higuain, but from the newly-released clip in this news report fans can clearly understand why Sarri might be.
Interestingly, the fight was caused after Higuain attempted to gain control of the ball from Luiz, but after failing in previous attempt, the Argentine went back for a second, and the Brazilian defender appears to have released his elbow at his teammate.
Higuain reacted by confronting Luiz. And seconds after Sarri was sighted leaving the session in an angry mood.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Chelsea have finally agreed to allow Eden Hazard join Real Madrid for £115m, with the Belgian captain expected to pen a weekly deal valued at £400,000, according to reports.
The UK Daily Mail revealed that Hazard has been repeatedly linked with a switch to the Spanish giants for over a year, with the Belgian star confirming last summer, that he has already decided his future.
Interestingly, Hazard’s switch to the Santiago Benerbeu is expected will kick-start Zinedine Zidane's overhaul of the Los Blancos squad and according to the Sun, after both clubs have reportedly settled for a fee for the 28-year-old.
